Eocordlng Couduct and Character of Soldier of Permanent 

388. The guiding principle in examining a soldier's conduct informotion 
siieets with a view to assessing his character, is to differentiate to bo s'nen in 
between a maa's character as a soldier and his character as a "="'^^"'0- 
man. *^^^- **"^- 

Tho main object of giving a soldier a certificate cf character 
is to assist him in obtaining eniploymoat in civil life, and tho 
certificate should be so worded that employers of labour can 
readily estimate the true worth of tho man. In addition to 
recording his character, the certificate should contain any in- 
formation whi eh would shoiv what qualification a man passessea 
as regards cirilian employment, e.g., 'Hhoroughly sober and 
reliable"; "accustomed to the care of horses and a good 
groom"; "a good clerk, painstaking and industrious"; also, 
if desired by the soldier, *^wife (here Btate Christian name in 
full) is a fair, good, ver^ good (washerwoman, needlewoman, 
&e.)"; or any other special qualifications which a woman may

If men recommended as of "good' character are found to be*'*,",*",*"'"*' **'

hour will not be gained. On ttie other hand, if, on account of 
comparatively trifling irregularities of a purely military nature, 
a man is refused a good character, his stibsequent career in civil 
life may be injuriously affected. The lesponsibilityj therefore, 
of a CO. in this respect is very great, and his special attentioii 
is directed to the subjeet. 

390* To ensure uniformity in estimating and recording a Tarms to be

his character as a man, tor example — (i) **condT:et indiffer-

lias proved a gallant soldier in the field.'* In cases whore the 
character is racorded as f«ir, or upwards, the CO. will supple- 
ntent it (when in the soldier's interest) by the words: — 

(a) No offence in whole service of years; 

(b) No offence during tho last years; 
and (where applicable) 

No instance of drunkenness in whole service of 
Any such particulars that can be truthfully recorded in

different, badj &c,, is not to bo inserted in the corti£cate,

are not to bo roeovorod from any other source while he re- 
mains in military service. Subject to this regulation, the daily 
deduction on account of a fine, or finea, recorded against a 
soldier will be limited only by the provision that tley shall 
not exceed such sum as shall leave to the soldier after paying 
for personal charges such as messingj washing, haircutting, &c., 
the sum of 10c per day. 

Desertion and Offeaces Against Enlistment. 

498. As soon as it is known that a soldier has absented 
himself without leave, his equipmeJit, elwthing, and regimentaJ 
necessaries will at once be placed in safe custody, and an in- 
ventory of these articles will be taken as soon as practicable.

A CO. is to transmit to the O.C evory other permanent unit, 
direct, a descriptive report, on M.F. — B. 153, of orery deserter 
or absentee without leave, giving pflrticulars of the man's 
height, age, &c., at the time of his absenting himself, and the 
fullest information possible. When there is good ground for 
supposing an absentee to have deserted, the report should be 
rendered within 24 hours after his absence has beeji discovered, 
but in no case should it be delayed beyond five days. Up to 
21 days the man should not be returned as a doeerter, unless 
there is ground for supposing that he has desertei. After 2.1 
Jays every absentee without leave sliould, pendiig inveetiga- 
tion, be considered as a deserter. In the case of a recruit who 
absconds on route to join, a note shoild be made of this fact ' 
on the repoit. 

499. A copy of the report is also to be transmitted to thoDuplicnt* 
police of the locality in or near which the man deserted. "P"*"-„, 
Similar reports should be sent to tha police of the place to ^^' 
which it is supposed the deserter or absentee may have proceed- 
Bd, and elsewhere, as the CO. may cc^isidcr dcsirtiblo.

on suspieiou of being a d(Hortor in pursunnt'e either of in forma ■Po'''j'" "<>* 
tion laid against him, or of his own confession, lie is to bt'JJfJiJf ^pp^^^ 
proceeded against in nceordunce with Section 154 of the Army in-ndod or 
Act. If, however, a deseiter surrenders himself to any portion "urronderinsf 
of his own Corps, and evidence as tc identity is immediately ""c^^^Jgg' 
available, he may at onco be ifcakon into military suBtody, OJid 
the CO. is forthwith to proceed against the man, Tf a man, 
in the uniform of a soldi er» surrenders himself at a military 
station as a deserter or absentee without leave, the CO. of 
that portion of His Majesty's Forces to which the man sur- 
renders will obtain from the man a written confession, stating 
his number, name, corps and date and place of absenting him- 
aelf, and will ascertain, by telegram if necessary, whether the 
confession is true. If the confession is true, the CO. will, if 
the man is a de>*ertor, apply to the man's unit for an escort to 
be sent to conduct him back to his corps, and wilt detain him 
in military custody, pendiug the arrival of the escort; or, if an 
absentee without leave, the man may^ on the authority of thp 
CO. of his unit, be provided with a warrant and despatched 
to his corps without escort* In either case, the CO. of the 
troops to which the man surrenders will himscli investigate 
the case, and will furnisL a certificato, signed by himself, set- 
ting forth tho fact, date and place of surrender. This certificate 
will be forwarded to the man's unit without delay, and will be 
Bvidence of the matters stated in it. If the confession is false, 
he may be proceeded against before tlie civil power under Sec- 
tion 152 of tko Army Act. If there is not ground for supposing 
that a person so surrendering himself is a deserter or absentee 
without leave, he will be at once handed over to the civil 
power. In no other cases than those mentioned in this para- 
graph, is a person not sarving as a soldier to bo taken into 
military custody — except for the purpose of being brought forth- 
with before l court of summary jurisdiction — until ho has been 
duly committed by a magistrate and delivered iuto military

Procedure of 
from civil 

601. When oxomptiou from trial on u charge of fraudulent 
culiatmeut has been earnofl by exompliry service in any corps, 
the Commanding Officer of that corps will bo held responsible 
ior notifying the fact to the soldier's previous corps. 

502. When a soldier is held to serve in his present corps, he 
will serve on his last attestation. U he is relegated to his 
former corps he will serve on his former attestation. 

503. As a general rule, a sgldior who has fraudulently oa- 
listed will bo tried in his present corps, and arraigned as be* 
bnging thereto; and the necessary evidence will bjj obtained 
from his former corps. 

504. Wbeu it is decided that a s.oUlior who has iraudulontly 
enlisted is to J)o relegated to his formci corps after punishment, 
the CO. of the unit in vrhich he is eerviug will forward his 
transfer tlocuments, and conimunicate the result of the trial, 
and particulars as to plate of eonflnement and cjipiration of 
imprisonment or detention to the CO. «f his former corps, who 
vrill arrange f[>r the removal of the man at the expiration of his 
suutonce. The relegation to the former corps will take effect 
from the date of committal. 

505. The CO of the unit to which a soldior may ho relegated, 
or, if the relegation bo not ordered, the CO. of the unit in 
which the soldie^r is serving, will comiiiunicato to any units in 
which sucli soldier may have jjreviously served, tie result of 
the trial, or tie manner in wliich his case has been disposed of. 

506. The regulations laid down in ijaras. 507 to 51 a will be 
observed in respect of an escort despatched for deserters, which 
will invariably take with it the route issued for the journey. 

507. When a notification is received that a person appre- 
hended on suspicion of being a deserter has been committed 
U prison to await an escort, a CO. will, where the man named 
18 traced as being illegally absent, and evidence as to identity 
ie available, despatch an escort (consisting if possible of sol- 
diors eapablo *f idejitlfyin^ tlio deaertor) to bring the dosertw 
back should he be identified. A "deserter route'' will be filled 
it for this service, and mast be taken by the N.C-0. detailed 
for the duty as the authority to receive the deserter flr absentee. 
]f it apjwara to the CO. that the pereon is not an absentee 
without leave or a deserter from the uait under his command, 
h« will so inform the magistrate or the governor of the prison. 
aE the ease may be, the latter being at the same tim« requested 
fo release the man from custody. In cases where the man 
admits the ofleuco and there is documentary evidence as to 
his desertion, lie may be taken over into military custody Jiot- 
withstauding that there arc no witnesses to' identify him, pend- 
ing instructions from the officer not below the rank of colonel 
having power to deal with the case bv D.CM. (which should 
be applied for) as to his being held to servo under Section 7Z 
of the Army Act. If the [lerson is an absconded racruit who 
has not joined his unit* the descriptive letuni will be truusmit- 
tel immediately to Militia Headquarters with an intimation to 
that effect. When the person is identified and received into 
military custody, the descriptive return will be retaiued by the 
unit concerned, the reward for the appreUension and the attend* 
ant expenses, if any, being' dealt with as provided in the Pay 
and Allowance Regulations.

Oin. 440. 

608. When a notification is received from the policQ that an 
alleged deserter is to bo brought before a court of summary 
jurisdiction for dispo'sal, a GO. will, if the man can be traced 
as a deserter or absentee {nut an absconded recruit) from the 
unit, despatch flh escort with a view to the alleged deserter 
being, if identifed, taken over at the court, instead of being 
committed to piison; if an escort can be sent so a^ to be at 
the court before the case is disposed of, the police ahotild bs 
notified by telegraph that an escort is being sent. In such 
eases the N.CO. of the escort will bo instructed to obtain M.F. 
— B. 350, before leaving the court. 

B09. An escort proceeding 'to receive over f roan civil custody 
a d<}serter, or absentee without leave, will be provided with 
an order for the removal of the man. The order wiU be given 
up to the governor, magistrate, police officer, or chief officer of 
the prison. When a "deserter route" is issued, this order, 
which forms part of it, will be detached aad similarly given up 
on taking over the deserter or absentee. 

CIO. The commander of an escort is required to compare the 
deserter and his necessaries with the deficription and account 
inserted on the ''route," as ho is responsible for the identity 
of the person committed to his charge, ind liable tc punish- 
ment for suffering the necessuries of the deserter to be misused 
or made away with on the road. 

611. Such nocBssaries as tte deserter may absolutely require, 
and which are not amongst the articles left behind by hiin, 
not exceeding, 1i[>wever, one shirt, one pair of boots or shoes, 
and one pair of fiocks, wiU be provided under the orders of the 
CO, of the corps furnishing the escort, and the charge for the 
same will be defrayed by the O.C the company, &c., to which 
the man belongs, and will be subsoquontlr included in the de- 
eertor's accounts. , 

512. In cases where identification is necessary, and it ap* 
pears to a CO. doubtful if tlie deserter should be conveyed to 
the headquarters of his unit, be wilt make an immediate report 
to the D.O.C with a view to special instructions being given. 
613. An escort wiU not take into custody a person who is 
not identified as a deserter. 

5L4. When a soldier has been committed as a desertor under 
the Army Act, Saction 154, and has signed the confession con- 
tainod in the form of committal to the effect that he is a desert- 
er, or when a soldier while serving has signed a confession that 
be has been guilty of fraudulent enlistment (Sec. 13 of the 
Army Act), and it is not considef^ed desirable that th» soldior 
should be tried for his offence, application will be made to the 
D.O.O. in, or under, whose command the soldier is serving, who 
may dispense with the soldier's trial by Eourt-martial for de- 
sertion or fraudulent enlistment, and mak« an order as to for-

form of confession. 

516. If the application for dispensing with- trial in case of 
desertion or fraudulent enlistment is approved it is a disposal 
of the ca>e. It will therefore be illegal for a Commandiag 
Officer to award any punishment in addition.

I General Instructloiis. 

521. Under the Army Aet, the jurisdictioii of counts-martial juriBdiction. 
in respect of tike trial of ditfcrent offenses is unrestricted, and Can. 453. 
it will be observed that, except whero a particular course is 
prescribed by the regulations, it is not imperative to try any 
ofience by court-martial. 

622. A superior officer to whom a case is referred may deal P«wer of 
with it as follows:— XVr 

(i.) He may refer the case to a superior officer; or Oan. 454. 

(ii.) He may direct the disposal of the case summarilyi 

or by R.O.M,; or 
(iii.) If he has power to convene a D.C.M., ho may con- 

veae a D.C.H. lo try it; or 
(iv.) If he has the power to conv^ene a G.C.M., he may 
eoAvene either a G.C.M. or i D.C.M, to try it. 

623. The oiUcer referred to in para. 522 as a "superior 
officer,'' is not more clearly defined, as his position and rank 
depend upon the varying conditions of service. It rests with 
tha Militia Council to determine to wliom charges should be 
referred which should not be disposed of without reference to 
higher authority. 

When the superior offieor is the CO. of the accused or an 
officer who has investigated the case, he cannot eaerciso the 
powers detailed in para. 622 (ii) to (iv) inclusive. 

624. When an officer to whom a charge is submitted is of 
opinion that delay is inexpedient, he may dispose of the case 
without any roference to higher authority. , In such case he 
must immediately report his action, and his reasons for it^ to 
tho officer to whom he would otherwise have referred the case. 

626. If a soldier has beea tried by an inferior court without 
the authority herein prescribed, the valijity of the proceedings 
is not affecteil therebyi nnd the coaviction, if otherwise 
sustainable, will hold good (see para. ^12). 

626. In deciding as to the description of court before which 
a charge shall be tried* geaeral and other officers iu superior 
command will bear in mind that there are few offences which 
cannot effectually be dealt with by D.CM. In cases^ however, 
of very aggravated offences, when the etate of discipline in a

527, When a soldier is to be tried for an offence in relation 
to enlistment, the particulars of his character and of former 
convictions when serving under previous attestations will be 
obtained, both for the information of the convening officer 
and for the purpose of being given in evidence before the 
court-martial. Civil convictions for offences while in a state 
of absence or ^«sertio<n should be given in evidence after the 
finding. Trial should not be unduly delayed if difficulty occurs 
in procuring documeiuta, in relation to any previous service,

523. In tho case of offences against a superior, an ofifen«e 
having relation to tlie office teld bj the superior is of greater 
gravity than an offence against the individual apart from the 
duties of his office, and^ especially in the less serious classes 
of this offanee, tho lonrer tho rank of the tuperior officer 
against whom the offence is committed, the lees will usually 
be tho gravity of the offence. 

529. Any oOieor oi soldier who, when in tho prosenee 
.of the enemy, displays a white flag or other symbol in 
anticipatioa, or in tokea, of surrender, will bo tiiod by G.G.M. 
In cases whore the ovidance is not Buffieiont to justify a charge 
under Sections 4 or 5 of tho Army Act, the charge will bo laid 
under Section 40 of that Act. 

630. Theft from a comrade should, unless there are pa- 
culiarly complicated circumstances, be dealt with by court- 
martial in preference to trial by the civil power, and the 
charge is to be framed under Section 18 (4) Array Act. Where 
there is no evidence of theft, and a soldier is charged with 
improper possession of a comrade's property^ tha charge is to 
bo laid under Section 40. 

631. When a pay sergeant is uaable to account satisfaa- 
torily for public monoy entrusted to him, and it is proposed to 
try him by court-martial for an offence involving fraud, under 
Sections 17 or 18 of the Army Act, if there is ony reasonable 
ground for believing: that the deficiency may Lave been the 
result -of n&gligence only, an alternative charge under Section 
40 of tho Army Act should be added to the charge sheet, the 
particulars of which should contain the allegation that he so 
negligently performed his duties as to cause a loss to the 
public of ttie sum unaccounted for. 

632. Applications foi District Courts-Martial are to be ae* 
companied by a return showing the number of qualified 
officers available to be detailed as members of the court. 

If officers attached to the Permanent Porco for instruction 
are detailed aa members of courts-martial, thej are entitlccl 
to seniority according to their militia rank. 

533. When an officer of the rank of captain is not avail- 
ible as president of a b.C.M., the power of eonvening the 
court should not be ejcercised except when sueli a course is 
absolutely accessary, and when the case cannot convenientlj' 
be referred to the Militia OouncU. 

634. The proper autlority to convene a R.O.H. is the C.u. 
of tho pere&n charged, and although an officer atIio is author- 
ized to convene a G.C.M. or a D.O.M., or an officer in com- 
mand of a mixed force, baa this power, ho should, when ha 
orders a case to be disposed of by R.C.M., direct the CO. to 
convene the court instead of couvcEing it himadf, unless tho 
CO. is unable to form a court from the officers under his 

636. Jn framing charges for offences in the cases of sol- 
diers employed in talcing care of hoisea and stables, it will bp 
borne in mind that the sections of the Army Act referring to 
sentries do not apply to "stablemen," which latter expression 
applies only when the orders regarding the posting and relief' 
of sentries are hot strictly carried out; but whea a soldier of 
a stable guard or piquet is posted over horses oi otherwise as 


a sentry, and is regularly relieved as such, he is to be regarded 
in every respect as a sentry, notwithstanding that he may 
have been posted witkout arms. 

636. When a soldier is to be tried by court-martial for an Court-martlil 
offence under Seotioii 13 of the Army Act, and the evidence '^^'^cSn^^MB 
appears to disclose that by committing such offence he has 
obtained a free kit to which he was not entitled, the words 

** thereby obtaining a free kit, value " should be added 

to the particulars of the charge^ the value being assessed 
according to the Clothing Begulations. If the soldier is con* 
victed of the offence^ the court, after satisfying themselves 
that colnpensation for such free kiit is due to the public, 
should invariably award a sentence of stoppages for the value 
thereof as stated in the charge. 

637. In framing charges under Section 24 of the Army Ast, Framing 

the following rule will be observed: — charges under 

In tho absence of evidence of aome positive act of pawn- ^'oan^^BS

proved in evidence. This applies only to articles the value ' ' . 
of which has to be made good to the public. Except as pio- 

vided in para. 536, it wilt be unnecessary to set forth the 
vahies of necessaries and personal clothing that are the pio- 
perty of the soldier, tha specificatioa of which ii required only 
to acquaint the soldier with the particular articles he is 
charged with making sway with, or losing by legleet, and to 
enable him to answer to tho charge. Any deficiency of neces- 
saries and personal clothing (except as provided in ttie 
Clothing Regulations for returned deserters) > his to be made 
good by the soldier as a matter of account between him aad 
his captain (subject to his right cf complaint under Section 
43 of the Army Act).

This does not lipply to simple cases of theft, 

643. Every cEiarge preferred against an officer oi soldier, 
und the circumstances on wlich it is founded, are to be care- 
fully oxaciiucd by the ofllcei under whose authority the order 
for trial is issuod, and the Qvidcnee shoald be in hii opinion 
BufUcJont to justify the arraignment of the accused before a 
CO iit-mnrtift!. He must satifify himself that the charge is for 
an offence under the Army Act, and properly framed ia accord- 
ance with the Rules of Procedure and these Kegulationa, 

644. When a soldier is to be arraigned on a serious charge, 
and charges for minor offences, are pending against him, or 
the circumstances of the serious offence disclose minor of-' 
fences, tho convening ofBcer may use his discretion in striking 
out any minor cffoucc, and directing that it shall not be pro- 
ceciied with. Special provision is made for the case «f simple 
drunkenness in para. 494< As a rule, a charge should not 
be hrought to trial as an addition to a serious charge if It 
would not otherwise have been tried by court-martial. 

646. If, in the opinion of a convening officer, a court-mar- 
tial could more conveuientl.y bo held at a place other than 
that whore the accused is, he may cause the court te be con- 
vened at any place within bis command. If it is desired to 
hold the trial in any place beyond his command, application 
will be made to the Secretary of the Militia Council with an 
explanation of the reasons for this course, A saving of expense 
owiag to transit of witnessee or members would be a suHicieut 
reason, but no change of place is to be made when it appears 
that the accused is likely to be prejudiced in bis defence by 
the change. When the cose is to be tried in another command, 
the court will be convened under the orders and on the respou' 
sibility of the o^cer to whose command the accused is removed. 

646. When an officer or soldier is required as a witness before 
a court-martial, and is not serving in the District in vrhich the 
court is to be held, application for his attendance is to be made 
to the Secretary of tho Militia Council. The probable day of 
the assembly of the court should be stated in such application. 

647. An officer will be required on first joining to att(*n.i 
all Eegimental Courts-Martial for iustruetion, and such other 
courts-martial as the Officer Commanding the station may direct, 
for at least one year from tho d^te of Lis joining; and be is 
jnot to be nominated a member of a court-martial, even if 
qualified to sit, until his CO. deems him competent to perform 
BO important a d&ty, nor, when it can be avoided, unless he has 
previously attended as supernumerary at least ten times. i 

548. In a difiicult case the convening oflcer will select a 
specially qualified officer to act as prosecutor. If such an 
officer ie not available, he should apply &s soon as possible to 
superior authority for the services of one.

649. An Officer Commanding a Military District is to obtain Engagement 
the sanction of Militia Headquarters before counsel is engaged **' can* «6. 
to appear on behalf of a prosecutor. The assistance of counsel 
at courts-martlaJ should be applied for only in cases of an 
exceptionally difficult or complicated nature, and this course 
should be very rarely necessary when the offences are of a 
purely military character. 

650. Wlion an application is submitted to Militia Head- ^PPll<^*t^o" 
quarters for permission to engage counsel to appear on behalf "a^ol^iaV— 
of a prosecutor, the honr, date and place of assembly fixed for igib. 

the court-martial, with the name of tho officer who will act as 
prosecutor, should be atated, and a copy of the approved 
charges and of the summary of evidence should invariably ac- 
company and application, togetheir with a statemenit setting out 
the reasons for considering the employment of counsel necessaiy. 

If any alteration is subsequently made in the charges, a 
copy of the amended charges will be at once forwarded to 
Militia Headquarters. 

551. It is the duty of a prosecutor to hr'ing all the facts Duties of 
of a case fully before a court in evidence, and to take caie, pro<ecutor. 
especially when the accused is not assisted ii his dofoiwo, ^^°* * . * 
that no material fact in oonnectiott with the offence charged 
is omitted which would, if given ii evidence, tall in favor of 
the accused. Drunkenness is no excuse for the commission of 
an offence, but if the charges against a soldier do not allege 
drunkeanees, and he was drunk at the time he committed an 
offence with which he is charged, the prosecutor should bring 
out this fact in evidence. 

652. For D.C.M. and B.C.M. the legal minimum number af Number of 
members will ordinarily be sufficioot to form- Uie court; but raemberB to 
if necessaiy, a larger number may be detailed, and waiting ''*(jj[5j**'ij52- 
members jirovided. For the trial of doubtful or complicated 
cases a D.C.M. should, when poB8i1)le^ consist of five officers. 
When the minimum number is detailed not more than one 
meuibor sliDuId be a subaltern. 

663. The president of a court-martial must be named in the prescribed 
order for the assembly of the court The members and the '^^"^ o' 
waiting members may be mentioned by name or the number *''jJq^|JJ;_ 
and ranks and the unit to which they belong may alone be iei2. 

When the composition of a court-martial differs from the oan. 483. 
normal, in respect either of the description or of the rank of 
the officers ordered to form the court, or on account of the 
suspension of the operation of a rule, tho prescribed form of 
the order convening tho court must be strictly followed^ as 
the legalitr of the trial may depend on the correct wording of 
the order. 

It is essential that M.F.B. 220 ehould be free from altera- imp^ 577^ 
tions or erasures as repards the portion relating to the officers 
appointed and detailed to compose the court. Wlere alterations 
in the composition of the court are necessary at any time 
after M.F.B. 220 has bean prepared, this document will be with- 
drawn and A new M.F.B. 220 will he substituted.

Para. 662 



Imp. 688 


has ta undergo his sonteacft. Sentences must vary aceordiug 
to the requlremantB of disciplme, but in ordinary circumBtanees, 
and for the firet offence, a Bontence should be light. Care must 
be taken to discriminate between offences due to youth, temi>er, 
sudden temptatiojif or unaccustomed surroundings, &nd those 
due to premeditated misconduct 

If the accused has elected to be tried by a D.C.M. instead 
of submitting to the jurisdietion of hi> CO., his punishment 
should not on that ground bo incroasod. In ordinary ciri-um- 
stances the court should not award a heavier sentence thau that 
which the CO. had power to award. 

(ii). A soldier who is convicted by a court-martial of an 
offance under Ssctions 17, 18(4) or (5), cr 41 of the A.rmy Aet, 
ought, unless in the opinion of the court there are special 
reasons to the contrary, to be sentenced to imprisonment, and 
undergo his sentence in a civil prison, hut in cases where the 
confimumg o£Boeir does U'ot consider tJbe soldier shoutil be dis- 
chaJ'ged from tlie force as & consequence of his conviction,^ he 
may commute tlie sentence of imprisonment to one of deteutiou. 
These offences should not ba dealt wtih by a eourt-raartial in- 
ferior to a B.CJJ. 

(iii.) Except as provided in the prec&ding sub-paiagraph, a 
Boldior wntencod by a couit-majtial to imprisonment with or 
without discharge with ignominy, will ha committed to a civil 
prison to undergo his sentence, 

(iv.) Detention has been introduced into the scale of punish- 
ments in order that soldiers who are convicted of offences which 
do not warrant discharge should not, as a rule, be subjected to 
the stigma attached to imprisonmeast. The latter punish tne at 
oughit as a rule, to be reeorved for men convicted of serious 
offences, or of grave military offences, which in the opinion of 
tho court render thoir disebarge with ignominy advisable. 

(v.) Where, therefore, a Boldier hae, for a pure!/ military 
offence, been seateneed by a court-martial to imprisonment with- 
out discharge with ignominy, the confirming officer, or other 
superior authority, should, except under very special eircum- 
stances, commube the sentence to a sentenco of detention. 

(vi.) When a sentence of imprisonment is commuted into 
one of detention, the term of detention must in no case exceed ■ 
the terra of imprisonment originally awarded. 

(vii.) A sentence of detention, being lower in the scale 
of punishmenta than imprisonmenti cannot be commuted into 
ouQ of imprisonment. 

(viii.) Where a soldier laa been sentenced to imprisonment 
and to be discliarged with ignominy, and a confirming officer, 
or other superior authoritr, commutes the imprisonment to 
detention, he will, in such a case, remit the discharge with 
ignominy, as such a discharge cannot accompany a sentence of 
detention. Th* converse will also hold good, that is,/ when a 
confirming officer, or other superior authcrity^ remits a discharge 
with ignominy, he will at the same time commute the sentence 
of imprisonmeit to orie of detention. 

(ix.) A Boiaier who is convicted b.T a court-martial of a 
purely military offence and v^ho, at the expiration of his sen- 


Para. 662 

tence, will rejoin his unit, should not ordinarily bo sentenced 
to imprisonment. 

(x.) The powers of a E.CM., and of a CC^ do not extend 
to the award of impriaonment. A R.CM. or a O.O. may award 
detention and a soldier awarded detention will undergo his 
sentence in a detention barrack, or a branch detention bar- 
rack. He cannot be sent to prison for that purpose, but a soldier 
sentenced to imprisonment may undergo his sentence in a deten- 
tion barrack if no civil prison is available. 

(xi.) The following general instructions are issued for the 
guidance of courts-martial, but notliiog contained in thorn must 
be construed as limiting the discretion of the court to pass &ny

tioD 75 of the Army Act provides for the restitution of the (jaa. 494^

tenced to be placed under stoppages in lespect of the property 
stden, or unlawfully obtaiced, and any sum of money which 
may have been found upon him has been appropriated to the 
above use, he should be placed under stoppages for tke baJamce 
only of the stoppage awarded by the court,

that the finding vimA sentenses are legaJ, and that nie sentence. Oan, 496. 
is tieavier than the interests of discipline and the merits of the 
particular case require. In exercising the powers of commuta- 
tion OT mitigation the confirmfng oflicer will be guided by the 
iuBtructioDs in para. 562 in order that, having due regard to the 
soldier's character, &c., no great disparity may exist between 
sentences awarded for similur offences. 

667. A confirming authority, when tae proceedins^s require pemarka and 
confirmation, may confirm or refuse condrmation, or may send 
ba<^k the finding and sentence, or either of them, for revision 
unoe, but not more tlhon once, and whore the finding only is sen* 
back for revision, the court have power, without any direction, 
to revise the sentence also. 

When the confirming authority finds it neeessarjr to com- 
ment upon the proceedings of such a court-martial, whether ori- 
ginal or revised, his remarlts will be separate from and form 
no part of the proceedings. They will be communicated in a 
separate minute to the members of the court, or, in exceptional 
cases where in the interests of disciplinea more public instruc- 
tion is required, they will be made known in the orders of the 
command. In no case will tie comment upon a finding of "not 
guilty" or upon the inadecjuaey of a sentence, and great care 
is to be taken not to interfere unduly with the discretion with 
which the court is vested in the exercise of its judicial functions. 

Where statements made by an accused, in mitigation of pun- 
ishment, reveal facts which might infiuonce confirming officers 
in determining the proper sentence, or contain matter which 
m^ht call for disciplinary action, investigation into the truth 
or otherwise of such statements should he made by the confirm- 
injr ofiicer, if practicable, prior to confimiation. 

(f such inquiry is likely to cause substantial delay in confirm- 
ation, confirmirg officers may confirm the proceedings forthwith, 
and make investigation with a view to subsequent reconsider- 
ation. They will use their own discretion whether they will re- 
'tain the proceedings or will forward them at once to the Judge 
Advocate General; in the tatter case the outcome of the inves* 
tigation will b» communicated to the Judge Advocate General 
subsequently. •

568. If an oHicer who would liave confirmed tJie findiug auJ 
sentence of a court, had tlie trial resulted in a conTietiou, think* 
it necessary to remark upon the proceedings in a case whera 
the accused has been acquitted, he will not anner his observa- 
tions to the proceedings, but 'n-ill embody them in a letter fqr 
the information of superior authority, who will give such orders 
as may be necessary. 

569. If it appears to a confirmini^ oflScer that the proceed- 
ings of a court-martial are illegal, or involve subitantial iujus- 
tico to the accused, and he has not confirmed the finding and 
sentence, he will withhold his confirniation; if he has confirmed 
the finding and sentence, he will direct the record of the convic- 
tion to be removed, and the soldier to be relieved from all con- 
sequences of his trial. If he is in doutbt, be may refer the cast 
for the opinion of superior authority. When the circumstances 
of the case admit of reference without undue delay the proceed- 
ings of courts-martial that have been confirmed will not bu 
quashed without reference to the Judge Advpcata General. IC 
the proceedings can be legally sustained, and there is no sub- 
stantial injustice, but an irregularity has occurred, the convic- 
tion may take effect, but the confiiming ofiicor will consider 
what reduction of the sentence (if tny) is due lo the eoldiei. 
The same rule will npplj when the proceedings of a court-mar- 
tial, after confirmation, come under the review of any other 
authority competent to ileal with them. Except as above pro- 
vided, when a soldier has been tried and sentenced by court-mai. 
tial, and the proceedings have been confirmed, but the sentenca 
has been wkolly remitted, the remission does not extend to any 
any penalty or forfeiture consequent on the conviction^

Judge Advocate General, for transmission to the Secretary of 
Stato for confirmation ly His Kxcetleny the Oovernor-Generul

571. The proceedings of courts-martial, includiag the charge, 
finding, sentence, and confirmation, will bo promulgated when- 
ever practicable by being read out on parade, or in such other 
manner as may be directed for the particular occasion; in all 
cases, however, the promulgation must include the communis 
cation of the foregoing particulars to the accused. The data 
of promulgation will, when practicable, bo recorded upon the 
proceedings, and in cases where the confirmatioi is given hy 
the Governor-General for His Majesty, the date will be report- 
ed to Militia Headquarters. 

672. All proceedings of courts-martial, whether transmitted 
before or after promulgation, are to be accompaniad by a lettef 
specifying the nature ot the contents. 

573» The proceedings of a D.C.M. will, when promulgated, 
bo returned to the D.O.C, who will make necessary communica- 
tion respecting them to the president and judge advocate (if 
any) for their informstion. The D.O.C will then transmit 
them to the Judge Advocate Genera] without delay. 

The proceedings of any G.C.M. or D.C.M. wlieh have not

ister in Militia Council, be allowed to be attached to a unit of 
the Active Militia, for net more than two years ia succession,

published annually in Geaeral Orders. 

i6. Officers or N.C.Os, of the Instructional Cadre may be 
detailed for duty with a unit or a groip of units of tJie Active

ed are mainly those of instructing, under the orders of the CO., 
the officers and N.C.Os. of the iinit, and of supervising the in- 
struction given by the officers and N.C.Os. to the men. 

In certain cases it may also bo necessary for tho Instruction- 
al Cadre to undertake the elementary training of recruits be- 
fore they join their company, &c., but tho system to be aimed 
at as far as possible is that the officers should be the instructors 
of their own N.C.Os., and that both officers and N.C.Os. (and 
no* the InsftrttctioaKoJ Caidio) should instruct thedr own men. 
' By this means only can officers and N^.COs. acquire the habit 
of command and powers of jnstruetioa, and become, as they 
should bo, the leaders of tltedr men.

(b) For a parado for Divine Service, Musketry or Inspec- 
tion, of at least two hours' duration Half a day 

^(c) For a practical tactical exercise or field training of at 

least five hours' duration .....One day 

The equivalent of at hast eight days is to be devoted to 
drill and field training as distinct from Church Paiades, Mus- 
ketry, and Inspections. 

829. No credit will be given for classes of instruction for 
oiQcers, N.C.Os. or men, or for recruits' drills (of vMch there 
should be at least ten). 

830. At the inspection of a unit^ tha inspecting officer will

(Militia Book 28) of each Company, &c., in order to satisfy 
himself that the number cf drills, for which pay is claimed,

Medals and Decorations 

For this reason it is Beldom that medals can be pormitted 
to be replaced at the public expense. Such replacement ia 
confined to cases in which the loss of the medal was due 
eEtirely to unavoidable circumstanceSi such as shipTrreck, fire, 
&t. In interpreting this rule, care should be takei to differ- 
entiate between such accidental losses as might ordinarily be 
incurred in private life and those which are incurred solely 
^ through the oiigencies of the service. Thus: — ^Loss by theft, 
burglary, loss of baggage while travailing, or loss due to 
defective fastenings, &c., aie such as might be incurred by any 
individual and are not, therefore, to bo considered as fair 
charges against the public. 

In cases under (iii.) tlio soldier will be dealt with under 
Section 24 of the Army Act, and, if ccnvictod, he must serve 
three years cloar of an entry in the regimental conduct book 
before he can be recommeEded for the grant of a new medal, 
on paying the -value thereof. If sentenced to imprisonment 
or detention, the three years will reckon from termination of 
such imprisbnntent or detention. 

' In all cases where the clasps are not lost a new medal 
only is to bo applied for* 

f'O" o' >nedaU 1422. In the event of a flischarged soldier losing his medals, 
sqUUm. '* ^^^^ ^^ uecoBsary for him to make application through the 

Cf«0. i848. O.C. the unit in which he last servod, for th^ issue of new 
m&dals at his own expense, submitting with such application 
a statutory declaration setting forth the eircumstancea A regard 
to the loss, and showing that the Iobb was unavoidable and 
occurred through no fault of his own. )few medals will not bo 
issued until sis months have elapsed frcm the date of the loss. 

1423. When a medal or clasps issued by Canada require to 
be replaced at the expense of the man, the value thereof, $1.83 
for the medal, and 3G cents for eaoh clasp, must be deposited 
in the usual way in some authorized bank in the locality, to 
tha credit of the Eeceiver-General, and the depojit receipt 
tharefore must be seat to Militia Headijuartors with tiio applica- 
tion for issue. The charge for a ribbon will be 5 cents. '

mendations for a medal with annuity ihould, in addition, be

of offences recorded in liis conduct slieets, irrespectively of the 
punishnjents which may have been avrarded. Set vice of a soldier 
under 18 years of age may be included in the 18 /ears required
